Montezuma Well is a geological wonder, and a welcome sight in the sun baked Verde Valley of Arizona. The well is part of Montezuma Castle National Monument. It's located 11 miles northeast of Montezuma Castle between Camp Verde and Sedona, Arizona.
Two underground springs pump over 1.5 million gallons of water a day into Montezuma Well. This natural well was utilized by Native Americans beginning 1,000 years ago with the Sinagua. What the Sinagua culture left behind include cliff dwellings, a pit house, large pueblo ruins, and an irrigation canal - with sections that are still used by residents today.
Camping: There is no camping at Montezuma Well, however camping is allowed in the Coconino National Forest to the east. Suitable sites for RV camping and tent camping can be found along FR-121, and also along several other forest service roads that branch off of the main artery, FR-618.
